I love my stay. The staff was amazing and helpful. The view was simply amazing. I love the morning breakfast. The hotel is located in a great place with many shops, restaurants, etc w/in walking distance. The staff helped arrange transportation for me and answered all my questions. A must stay.

Hotel Kavalari is easy to get to, just a short walk from the public bus depot in Fira. The view is spectacular over the volcano and cliffs of Santorini, and breakfast is served on one of the terraces. The staff were great and helped us with maps, advice and also sorted out a couple of problems for us.

We were to stay 2 days 19/5/17 to 22/5/17 but had to cancel our trip as my son got hospitalised and had to undergo 2 surgeries one on 24/4/17 and other other on 7/5/17 in Mumbai India. He is still in the Intensive Care Unit at Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai India. I requested the hotel to refund us the money...

The first person most of us meet when staying at a hotel is the reception clerk. Maria checked me in and she is the reason my rating is 4 stars rather than 3 or 3.5 stars. Personable and helpful, Maria is an asset to the hotel. The hotel is located on "Gold Street" and overlooks the water. The positive is...

Had booked a cave room, and got exactly that. Was able to have a kids bet put in the very spacious room for a small fee. We arrived in an early morning flight, and while the checkin time was in the afternoon, the staff, Mr. Dmitris, was able to give us the room right then, so we were able to...

My sister and I just got back from Greece! We were originally booked to stay at a different hotel and at the last minute we were switched to Hotel Kavalari! Best thing that happened to us in Santorini. The view alone from this hotel was worth the trip to Greece. The rooms were adorable and the staff was absolutely great....

Loved this hotel. Beautiful and well kept patio with a great view. Even though it's right downtown, was quiet and private. Staff was so nice and helpful. Kristos, a member of the staff, was the BEST. Great wifi. Comfortable bed. Shower was cold, though. If that's a deal breaker.

Thank sophmaried

“VERY IMPORTANT: Get a room at the top of the hotel. We were on the bottom which means about 10 sets of steep stairs--nice the first time.”
